The Main Street Arts Council invites all area art enthusiasts to the annual “Main Street Art Walk” scheduled for Friday, Aug. 27 from 5 to 8 p.m. in downtown Hoxie.
Enjoy an evening of art, food, fresh air and fun as you make your way through Main Street viewing the artworks of area artists.
The evening will also feature several art demonstrations, a sidewalk chalk drawing contest, face painting, 5-minute portraits, and live music by Ellen and Emma Weiner. The First State Bank is once again hosting an art project for youth.
A silent auction featuring donated works from the participating artists will be set up and available for bidding from 5 to 7:45 p.m. at Bottle KAP Studios, 721 Main St. Funds raised will be pooled with those from the Quinter Art Walk to help support area student scholarships to study the arts and music.
Raffle drawings for several prizes will be held once again. To participate, pick up a map from any artist, visit all artists to view their works and acquire their signatures, then drop off the map at Bottle KAP Studios (with participant name and contact information) for a chance to win. Prizes include a $50 gift card to The Elephant Bistro & Bar, a Family-level membership with the Main Street Arts Council, and an art supplies gift basket.
Food vendors, including Mama Deb’s Cookin’ and Blue Blaze Pizza will be set up between Equity Bank and First State Bank. Picnic tables, provided by the Sheridan County Amusement Company, will be available for dining needs.
All MSAC programming is made possible through the financial support of paid members, donations, and grants. To support MSAC in its endeavor to promote the arts, encourage creativity, serve the Arts community, and act as an advocate for the Arts, consider paid membership. Varying levels are available for both individuals and businesses, each offering a multitude of benefits and advertising premiums in acknowledgment of support.
